Swimming pools are very dangerous, especially for young children. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that you not put a swimming pool in your yard until your child is at least five years old. TIPP, the injury prevention program of the American Academy of Pediatrics, has offered tips to protect your children from drowning. Below is tip #6 from that list...
6.) Remove all toys from the pool after use so children aren't tempted to reach for them.
This will help limit any chance that fall into the pool when you're not looking or not around the pool area. NOTE: The AAP warns that teaching your child how to swim DOES NOT mean your child is safe in water.
